PSYCHEDELIC SUPPORT

Have you read Michael Pollan’s book ‘How To Change Your Mind’ and want to have your first psychedelic experience? Or read any of the recent articles about research on LSD, psilocybin, MDMA, peyote, ayahuasca or ketamine? Or seen GoopLab?

Maybe you’ve already experimented and find yourself – no – lost yourself. Please read on…

Classified as non-specific amplifiers, psychedelics can produce a variety of mind-altering experiences. These experiences are often unpredictable and may vary with the amount ingested and the user’s personality, mood, expectations, and surroundings. Experiences may include sensations that are enjoyable and mentally stimulating and that produce a sense of heightened understanding, or terrifying thoughts and nightmarish feelings of anxiety and despair. There are ways to support your experience - first, be educated. In this time of psychedelic renaissance the internet has a wealth of information on all topics. 

I offer guidance, trip sitting and post-trip integration.

INTEGRATION

Returning to regular work-life patterns can be psychologically jarring following a psychedelic journey. You may find yourself irrevocably changed whilst everything in the 'default' world remains the same. Thus, reshaping your life to mirror the inward changes you have undergone can be profoundly challenging.

The psychedelic experience can produce a spectrum of insights, ranging from personal to transpersonal to ecological. Sometimes a person will gain a new perspective on who they are, shifting the landscape around their professional purpose, intimate relationships, and lifestyles.

Psychedelic integration, then, has the intention of bridging the practical with the mystical, taking profound, ineffable experiences beyond the temporality of the psychedelic state and grounding them in day-to-day life in the form of enduring, positive changes.

I utilize my training and experience in body-centered trauma resolution therapy, Internal Family Systems therapy and other methods learned in psychedelic assisted therapy training

to support this integration process. 

Psychedelic support does not involve providing or prescribing any psychedelic or other controlled substance to a client.  it does not include referring to “underground” resources, or recommending use.

Additionally, it is not meant to encourage or discourage the use of psychedelics. It is my understanding that regardless of legal status, individuals may choose to ingest an illegal substance. The intention of this offering is to reduce potential risks that can come from the ingestion of a psychedelic substance.
